    Thank you for your information. Did you apply 1mm thickness of thermal pad to all the memory module chips & power supply chips (as red green & yellow region stated above)? I thought it will be different size of gap (thickness)between memory module chips & power supply.


    Thanks

    Yea, the pressure push it thinner bit. The memory one probably need to push down more. What really important is the vrm, memory doesn't really need them per say.

    My old m6600 needs a CPU repaste. Does anyone know if I need any thermal pads or just paste?

    Just paste is fine, reuse the pad on the chipset.

    I'm experiencing some problems with my USB ports. A few months ago I noticed that if I put slight downward pressure on one of the two left USB 2.0 ports, the device (usually a mouse) would disconnect. Probably some kind of physical damage. I just ignored it as I don't usually put pressure on those ports. Recently, however, I've had a problem with the mouse randomly disconnecting for a split second every few minutes. I'll hear the USB disconnection notification (a dinging sound), and the mouse will stop responding for a brief moment. So I moved to the right USB 3.0 ports, but the same problem started happening. However, applying downward pressure to the USB 3.0 ports does not cause the device to connect. In desperation, I tried the rear USB2/eSATA port and everything seemed stable. So that leads to my questions:

    1) How hard is it to replace the left USB 2.0 ports?
    2) Why would this be affecting the presumably undamaged USB 3.0 ports?
    3) Could it be a mouse driver issue? My USB sound card does not seem to randomly disconnect every few minutes.

    Thanks...

    EDIT: If it's not obvious, I'm talking about a Dell M6600.

    A good electrician should not have problems changing usb connectors. Usb 2 has 4 pins + usually 2 for holding onto mbo. Usb3.0 is a bit more, but with decent equipment shouldnt be an issue.

    Did you try with some other device? Perhaps the problem is with the mouse or its USB connector?

    I recently upgraded to the 980M which has an extra inductor unit so I had to add some extra pads to the stock ones. I've replaced the stock RAM ones with some 1 mm ones and used some 1.5 mm pad for the inductor unit which seemed to match the thickness of the stock pad used on the other two units.

    The RAM ones are of dubious use anyway since the bottom side RAM has no heatsink, but those VRM parts are crucial to be in a good contact with the heatsink I'd expect.
